Bullet Bills are Mario enemies that first appeared in Super Mario Bros. for the NES. The enemy gets shot out of a cannon, and heads straight forward, usually, the cannon only shoots if Mario is in front of it. There are many different types of Bullet Bills, such as ones that home in on its target.

They also appeared in Mario Kart DS, where it is an item, that transforms your player into a Bullet Bill that goes extremely fast and will ram into anything it touches. This item is considered the best item in the game.

They have also appeared in the Nintendo DS game New Super Mario Bros., where many different types of Bullet Bills appeared including ones that filled half the screen up.
